Coronavirus: State dentists resuming normal service, but appointments necessary

The state dentists will see patients only by appointment, with urgent cases having priority, the health ministry announced on Friday.

With the removal of restrictive measures, the service will now cover the whole range of dental care and not only emergencies, the announcement said.

However, patients need to make an appointment and priority will be given to cases which have been treated during the lockdown with antibiotics and analgesics.

Patients are urged to arrive on time and come unaccompanied. Those who have to be accompanied, such as children and people with mobility problems, should only bring one person.

While making an appointment over the phone patients will be asked if they have had symptoms of the coronavirus or have been in contact with a suspected or confirmed case.

Upon their arrival at public health centres their temperatures will be taken and they will be asked to disinfect their hands.

Visitors to the health centres are urged to wear masks and comply with instructions by staff for their own safety and that of staff and other patients.
